Made this for my granddaughter and she loved it but the dog I ordered for her from American Girl Doll company was a little large for it, next time I will make it a bit larger. It was fun to make.
This was so easy, it's my 12-year old daughter's first sewing project. She has some cute fabric chosen and I will send pics when done
Four year-old granddaughter, Amalia, loves her AG puppy even more than the dollies, so I was delighted to find this pattern! My stash held a bunch of doggie prints from ages ago, so my nine year-old grandson ironed them for me and served as designer for his sister's pet bed. What fun! I started with the pillow and loved the inclusion of a layer of quilting to give more substance though the extra layer was a smidge challenging on the corners. I've had a bias tape fear-factor going for a while, but pushed through and applied that to the edges. I wish the pattern had a bit more instruction on how to finagle the bias binding around the curved front, but mine was presentable if not perfect. Amalia was thrilled, and now I'm going to make a little pet blanket to match the bed ensemble. Bonus instructions for a blanket might be a nice plus. The skill level for this patterns says "fun and easy," but I'd rate it advanced beginner due to the addition of quilt batting and also given the decking that needed to be sewed on to the bottom of the sides. That wasn't exactly difficult, but my directional print ended upside down. No biggie! A few more tips on sewing the base ("decking") onto the sides would have been helpful. I wondered if there was a stitching order that would enable doing this earlier in the process to avoid those awkward corners, but totally a VERY fun pattern! My next one will be even better! :-)
I just made six more of these. It took me through the first few to realize that fitting the square bottom into the "frame" works easiest if one sews with the bottom up and each side is sewn as a separate seam (as opposed to trying to sew continously all around the bottom. I also rounded off the top edge as it dips to the curved opening, so that I could avoid having to miter my bias. With it curved the bias can be pressed to fit the curves prior to sewing.
